COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppier, maltier and with more alcohol than a standard IPA, Hercules Double IPA definitely is not for the faint of heart. Hercules Double IPA is, however, an elixir fit for the gods. A brash but creamy wonder, Hercules pours a deep orange-coppery color, forming substantial lace in the glass. Hercules Double IPA delivers a huge amount of piney, floral, and citrusy hop aroma and flavor from start to finish. A hefty backbone of nutty, toffee-like malt character balances Hercules’ aggressive, punchy hop profile. 85 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

putrik (669) - - SEP 16, 2023
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2023 Vilken finstämd och väl tydlig malt som bakar fram grunden till brygden. Hulmlingen ger citrus av den lägre kalibern medan mango får en mer framträdande roll. Allt synnerligen väl balanserat, dock kan den höga alkoholhalten vika över mot ett mer spritigt intryck. En öl man kan dricka oftare om burkens storlek varit något mindre.

EerieDrinks (1435) - Malm�, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2023
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2023 2 finger off-white head. Dissipates slowly. Spiderweb lacing all around. Semi-clear, amber coloured beer. Aroma of fruit bread, apricot and orange marmalade, marmalade candy (loathe these ones), dishcloth and rosehip. Taste of orange and apricot marmalade, frozen redcurrants, oats and hints of pine. Relatively subdued. Mouthfeel is oily and big with a medium-high lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Slightly sticky. A bit hollow on the finish and in general. Overall: I love this style of old school american WC IIPA. This one didn't go all the way for me though, it landed quite flat flavour wise and isn't as complex as I'm used to from the style. It doesn't have that dense delivery that explodes in the mouth. This also prevents the beer from balancing the sweetness that comes naturally with a beer this (ABV) size in comparison with its boozy bitterness. I hope this is just an age issue because Great Divide usually do amazing stuff. Nice, but unfortunately not more than that.

ran_afoul (22) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2023
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2023 [As Hercules Imperial IPA.] 568 ml/1 imperial pint can bought at Systembolaget. Pours a relatively light orange with a reasonable amount of fine white head. Aroma is pineapple, peach, honey, some light bread and maybe some blackcurrant. Taste is fruity with some modest pine and only slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is middling. OA: Surprisingly light for a 9.5 % ABV beer, but very nice bearing in mind that this has been sitting in the can for five months (it is a shame that Systembolaget's import system takes so long to get the beers over to Sweden, though).

AlfredoGarcia (577) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 14, 2022
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2022 355 ml bottle. Very soft smell, low head, nothing spetial, but tastes super astringent and bitter. This is what you want when you get a double ipa, high ibu, strong taste, who cares about sweet and floral.

2OLD4BS (1389) - west windsor, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2022
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2022 Dark orange flavor with two fingers foam. Fruity flavors are infused with a lot of alcohol. Pine flavor galore. Big beer all around.
